LEAVES OF SUMMER

In this project I choose to focus on my urban balcony garden.

I like to draw leaves & flowers and doodling a lot. Now, I wanted to dedicate the project to leaves and to create depth in my pattern. 

So, my starting point was to take some photos of plants in my parent's balcony:

Then I created some sketches of leaves in different variations (and a little bit of flowers, but again- I wanted to focus on leaves only).

When choosing the color palette, I decided to collect a few photos from my visit to Greece, which gave me a lot of green colors and fresh palette with some light blue colors.I choose photos with many plants as possible to achieve a variety of green and blue colors, with some touches of hot red.

Motifs after coloring, I added shadow to the leaves:

Eventually, I finished up with this green leaves pattern. As you can see, I dropped some motifs and stayed only with the large leaves.

I liked the results, however I continued to have fun with changing colors and wished to create a happy summer-vibes pattern.

So I ended up with this two patterns (same motifs, different layout):
